Once again, the Navy football program has knocked their uniforms for the annual Army-Navy game with some incredible uniforms.

This year’s uniforms for the game are inspired by NASA and feature the NASA logo on the helmet which features incredible handpainted detail with an astronaut and the moon. The jerseys are red, white, and blue.

From the official release:

The Naval Academy Athletic Association and Under Armour partnered with NASA to use the official “meatball” logo to accurately recreate the spacewalk suit.

The white uniform with red stripes and the American flag mimic markings on the NASA spacewalk suit. The Helvetica font was used for the numbers and wordmark.  This typeface has been used by NASA extensively for decades, from the space shuttle to signage and printouts. It is one of the most ubiquitous typefaces in the world. The gloves are white and red with the astronaut pin on the palms.

The pants’ side-panels feature the NASA astronaut pin which was adopted in 1963. It was first given to Mercury 7 astronauts. The silver pin is awarded to astronauts after completing basic training and the gold pin is awarded after completion of a spaceflight mission.

Here is a closer look at the official reveal video from the Midshipmen.

This year’s annual Army-Navy Game presented by USAA will be held on December 10 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:00 PM ET on CBS.
